4 Herpes Simplex Virus  HSV-1—oral  HSV-2—genital  Risks—in text—black race, female gender, lower socioeconomic status, and high-risk sexual history  Asymptomatic shedding  HSV-2 and HIV—linked  HSV-2 increases risk of HIV HSV-2 reactivates more often in advanced HIV  HSV-2 suppression can decrease HIV-1 plasma level and genital tract shedding

5 Mucocutaneous HSV-1  HSV-1—mouth and oral cavity  ”herpes labialis” or “gingivostomatitis”  Herpetic whitlow—painful digital lesions  Herpes gladiatorum—painful rash transmitted classically by sports contact  Frequent asymptomatic shedding—monthly or more  Vesicles  ulcers (1-2 days)  epithelialization (1-2 wks)  Recurrences--fewer lesions, labial, heal faster  Triggers—stress, fever, infection, sunlight, chemo, ???

6 Mucocutaneous HSV-1



9 Mucocutaneous HSV-2  Primarily involves genital tract  May affect perianal region, buttocks, upper thighs  Multiple, painful, small, grouped, vesicular lesions  Dysuria, cervicitis, urinary retention  Increased HSV-2 lesion rates—postpartum period and among women who have sex with women  HIV patients—proctitis and sacral lesions  extensive, ulcerating, weeping lesions  Drug-resistant isolates—large ulcerations, atypical lesions

10 Mucocutaneous HSV-2



13 Mucocutaneous HSV Diagnosis  Clinical  Standard—viral cultures of vesicular fluid or direct immunofluorescent antibody staining of lesions  Intranuclear inclusion bodies  Multinucleated giant cells on Tzanck smear or Calcofluor prep

14 Mucocutaneous HSV  Treatment often not necessary in immunocompetent pts  Genital infection—oral agents—acyclovir, valacycloivr, famiciclovir  Primary—7-10 days and higher doses; Recurrent—1-3 days  Primary herpes labialis—oral antivirals as for primary genital  Recurrent herpes labialis—topical acyclovir and hyrocortisone, topical penciclovir, or oral antivirals  Immunocompromised—consider IV antivirals  Atypical isolates, large ulcerations, new lesions, poor response  Secondary prophylaxis—recurrent infections—daily oral antivirals

15 Ocular HSV  Keratitis, Blepharitis, Keratoconjuncitvits  If epithelial—heal without vision impairment  If stroma involved— uveitis, scarring, blindness  Frequent recurrence  Second most common cause of acute retinal necrosis

16 Ocular HSV  Branching (dendritic) ulcers on fluorescein stain  Treat with topical antivirals  Acute retinal necrosis—IV acyclovir or oral famciclovir  Topical steroids—may exacerbate  Long term treatment can reduce recurrences

17 Congenital/Neonatal HSV  HSV-1 and HSV-2  Congenital—organomegaly, bleeding, CNS abnormalities  Neonatal is more common than congenital  Highest risk—maternal infection in 3 rd trimester  70% of infections are asymptomatic or unrecognized

18 Congenital/Neonatal HSV  Treat disseminated lesions with IV acyclovir for 2-3 weeks  Counseling with serologic screening should be offered to pregnant mothers  Maternal antenatal suppressive therapy with acyclovir at 36 weeks gestation  C-section for pregnant women with active genital lesions or prodromal symptoms

19 HSV and CNS Disease  HSV-1: HSV Encephalitis, may enhance Alzheimer disease  Encephalitis symptoms: flu-like prodrome, headache, fever, behavioral or speech disturbances, seizures  High mortality rate—untreated, presentation with coma  Does not occur disproportionately among immunocompromised  HSV-2: Meningitis (primary or recurrent)  Both HSV-1 and HSV-2: benign recurrent lymphocytic meningitis; mild, nonspecific neurologic symptoms

20 HSV Encephalitis and Recurrent Meningitis  CSF Pleocytosis common  HSV DNA PCR of CSF— rapid, sensitive, specific but can have up to 25% false negatives  MRI scanning—increased signal in temporal and frontal lobes  IV acyclovir q 8 hours for 10+ days if suspected HSV encephalitis  Long term neurologic sequelae are common

21 HSV Encephalitis

22 Other HSV Manifestations  Disseminated—immunosuppression, pregnancy  Bell’s Palsy—associated with HSV-1  Esophagitis—HSV-1; immunocompromised  Proctitis—primarily in men who have sex with men  Erythema multiforme—leading association with EM and SJS (along with medications)  Acute liver failure—1% of cases but 75% mortality  Lower respiratory tract—mechanically ventilated pts  HSV-1—perinephric abscess, febrile neutropenia, chronic urticaria, SLE-related esophagitis and enteritis, H. pylori- negative upper GI ulcers, atrial myxoma

23 HSV Prevention  Antiviral suppressive therapy  Counseling  Barrier precautions  Disclosure of partner status—50% decrease in HSV-2 transmission  Hand washing and glove/gown precautions  HSV-2 glycoprotein D vaccine is under development

24 Varicella Zoster Virus

25  Manifests as chickenpox (varicella) and shingles (zoster)  Varicella—typically in childhood; incubates 10- 20 days  Highly contagious— droplet inhalation or lesion contact  Zoster—up to 25% of population; increases with age

26 Varicella  Fever and malaise  Pruritic rash  Maculopapules  vesicles  pustules  crusts  Multiple stages of eruption usually present simultaneously  “dew drop on rose petal”  Complications—secondary bacterial infection, pneumonitis, encephalitis—in 1%  More severe in older pts and immunocompromised

27 Zoster  Mostly among adults  Pain—severe—often precedes rash  Varicella-like lesions—usually in dermatomal distribution  Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus—lesions on tip of nose, inner corner of eye, and root and side of the nose (Hutchinson sign)  Herpes Zoster Oticus—facial palsy, lesions of ear +/- TM involvement, vertigo, tinnitus, deafness (Ramsay Hunt syndrome)  Contact with varicella patients—not a risk factor

28 Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

29 Herpes Zoster Oticus
